Around 11,996 years for lemmy.ml if everything keeps the same pace.
Linear fit will not be accurate … maybe logarithmic fit would be better ? Also : there will be a crisis someday at Reddit and there is no mathematical fit for that !
I know. I gave a result based on the assumption that users register at a constant rate just for the fun of it, which is obviously inaccurate, because that rate changes according to external factors.
I also used total users not active users in a month and of lemmy.ml not lemmy in general. That line, on the small scale of less than a year does look linear, but obviously in the grand scheme of things isn’t.
